VRR support reaches PS5 this week
For a long time it was known that a variable update frequency option, or VRR for its acronym in English, was on the way to PS5 . Now, today, it has been confirmed that This option will reach the new Sony console through an update this week.
Although a specific date is not provided, it was mentioned that the PS5 will receive a new update this week, with which an option of VRR will be included that will work with all televisions and monitors compatible with HDMI 2.1 . This was what the company mentioned in this regard:
"In televisions and PC monitors compatible with HDMI 2.1 VRR, the VRR dynamically synchronizes the update frequency of the screen with the graphical output of the PS5 console. This improves the visual performance of PS5 games by minimizing or eliminating visual artifacts, such as frame rhythm problems and tear of the screen. The gameplay in many PS5 titles feels more fluid since the scenes are rendered smoothly, the graphics are sharpest and the entry delay is reduced. "
Similarly, a game list has been shared that will receive an update that will provide support for VRR on PS5 . These are:
-CALL OF DUTY: Vanguard
-CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS COLD WAR
-DEVIL MAY CRY 5 SPECIAL EDITION
-Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered
-Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales
-RATCHET & CLANK: Rift Apart
-Resident Evil Village
-Tiny Tina's Wonderlands
-Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
-Tribes of Midgard
More games will receive a similar update in the future , while upcoming releases will already have support for VRR from day 1. On related topics, there is already a launch date for the new PS Plus. In the same way, these would be the first classic titles in this service.
Considering that VRR is something that many PC and Xbox games already support, it was only a matter of time before the same thing happened with PlayStation. It will be interesting to see how games like ratchet & clank: rift apart and marvel's spider-man: Miles Morales work with this option activated.
